Light to Pro Bowl
The Patriots just sent out the following press release:
New England Patriots offensive tackle Matt Light has been selected to his first career Pro Bowl. He becomes the first Patriots offensive lineman to earn an All-Star selection since center Damien Woody following the 2002 season and is the first Patriots offensive tackle to head to Hawaii since Bruce Armstrong following the 1997 season. Light joins Armstrong, Brian Holloway and Leon Gray as the only Patriots offensive tackles to be selected to the Pro Bowl since the 1970 AFL-NFL merger.
The 2007 Pro Bowl will be played on Saturday, Feb. 10. Head Coach Bill Belichick and the Patriots staff will coach the AFC squad. Light, who will be the only Patriots player on the AFC squad, was added to replace Baltimore’s Jonathan Ogden.
Light, 28, is a veteran of six NFL seasons and has played in 81 career games with 79 starts at left tackle since being selected by the Patriots in the second round (48th overall) of the 2001 NFL Draft.
